How to use deflation in a sentence?

  1. Kevin Lai:

    The risk for China is still deflation, not inflation. PPI deflation will eventually filter down to affect CPI, and aggregate demand will continue to be weak.

  2. Samuel Tombs:

  3. Karen Ward:

  4. Daniel Larrouturou:

    Inflation has basically disappeared in Europe, this is it. Prices are down in a lot of countries and salaries are going nowhere. There's a risk to see the drop in oil pushing the euro zone into deflation, but we're not there yet, and a potential round of quantitative easing by the European Central Bank (ECB) could help avoid that.

  5. Ben Narasin:
